How many reasons did you check? 1, 5, all of them?
Well, I’m sorry, but none of them were correct. You are obese because you choose to be obese!
Okay, wait, don’t stomp away mad.
There are so many reasons we became obese, but that was yesterday. Today is what matters and if you don’t step up and change, then you are choosing to be obese.
Regardless of how hurt we were, of how enabling or disinterested or even abusive our parents were. Regardless of physical or verbal assaults. Regardless of the change in our body after menopause or childbirth. Nothing matters but how we react today.
Don’t take this wrong. I am not marginalizing your past. I’m just stating the truth. We can let our past dictate our future or we can step away and become the author of our own destiny.
You are who you are. How you got to your current weight doesn’t matter as of today. The only thing that matters is what you’re going to do about it.
Granted, not everyone is ready to give up their fat suit. They feel it protects them and that’s fine. Until you resolve that, hold onto your fat suit so you don’t live in fear. But for everyone else, examine closely to see if your past has evolved into an excuse to continue to eat foods that keep you obese and unhealthy.
Don’t Run Away Yet!
We have all had to face this to finally rid ourselves of our fat suits and keep the weight off. Until you accept total responsibility for your weight and that means not blaming your body type or metabolism or even your thyroid. Even if you’re taking steroids or anti-depressants, if they are part of your life you have to put them into the weight loss equation.
Ultimately, we are the ones who put the food into our mouths and the one who steps up or doesn’t to get the exercise our bodies require. There are millions of excuses we can come up with to rationalize why we are different, but in the end it comes down to this.
You are who you are. You can’t change the past.
Your body is your body and it is up to you to fuel it and exercise based on its needs not how you’re feeling in the moment.
You must care for your body and yourself with as much dedication, love, and care as you do for your children, loved ones and friends.
Until you reach that point, you are not ready for RFBC!
Of course, I don’t expect you to be perfect. You will stumble and you will fall, but after each fall you get to choose whether to keep the fat suit and claim it as yours or get up and work toward healing yourself through the right choices in food and exercise.
This is a hard concept for most obese women. We want/need someone or something to blame for our obesity. But if we accept responsibility, then even on our most hectic chaotic emotional days we declare it was our choice to separate life from food or to medicate with food. Either way, the choice was all yours. The devil did not make you do it. Will power didn’t let you down. It was your choice, your decision. Accept it and move on.
When you get to that point, come join us at Raw Food Boot Camp and learn how to fight through those excuses and emotions. It doesn’t work until you truly want to change, but oh how glorious life can be when you are ready!
